Why you gotta play me like that, Jeffrey?!

So I was blissfully going along the other day, catching up on some links I’d found on the Boston Ballet Facebook page when I landed on a local PBS program profiling the elder siblings Cirio and their side project, the Cirio Collective.

There I am, all happy to see one of my favorite dancers profiled when, towards the end of the segment they dump this little bombshell on me:

Jeffrey Cirio is LEAVING Boston Ballet for ABT!!!

I jumped up and started stamping around my office, much to the chagrin of my office-mate who had no idea why I was suddenly so distraught.

But I just…

NO!

Just no!

This guy — the highlight of every BB show I attend — is turning his back on us, defecting to the dark side! Waaaahhhh!!!

I really have no idea what I’m going to do.

One of my fellow dancers suggested we arrange a road trip to NYC to watch ABT so I can still get my fix. While I don’t want to reward such traitorous behavior on JC’s part, I may have to do exactly that since I have no idea how else I shall survive the coming season without glimpsing him flying around on stage.

Tears and woe… 😦
